Integrating transit with existing and future land use is key to achieving NCTD’s vision to build a transit system that enables customers to travel easily and efficiently throughout the region. In 2008, NCTD launched a Land Use and Transit Integration Study (Study) that identified priority corridors and focus areas throughout the service area that would most benefit from transit improvements. Now, NCTD is developing a Strategic Multimodal Transit Implementation Plan (SMTIP) to create a 10-year plan to make these improvements a reality with defined strategies. This page describes the work that is happening for the SMTIP and how to get involved and stay informed about our progress.

Identifying corridors that could be converted to rail to meet future travel demands
From the beginning of the Study, a variety of information and engagement activities have gained input from stakeholders including transit riders, non-riders, commuters, employers, students and the planning and public works staff from the local jurisdictions in NCTD’s service area. Public involvement will continue as SMTIP progresses to gather input and keep stakeholders informed. Here are some highlights of what’s planned:
Social Media Campaign
A social media campaign will be held in January 2020 to collect input from riders and non-riders about their daily commutes, as well as what kind of improvements would encourage them to use public transit more.
Our outreach team is planning a pop-up meeting during each phase of the project. These activities will be announced via social media and this webpage. They will be held at locations where we can hear from different points of view throughout the planning process.
Technical Working Group
This working group began under the previous Study and will continue throughout SMTIP’s planning process to provide technical information city by city about how various strategies could be integrated and implemented into local plans and regulations.
The planning team will also present to the Board at meetings that are open to the public. When on the agenda, this plan will be included in regular Board Meeting notices.
These public involvement opportunities started under the previous Land Use and Transit Integration Study and will continue.
